AM I A START UP?
It is common to be confused with the definition of a start-up, so let’s keep it simple:
A young company founded by one or more entrepreneurs to develop a unique product or service and bring it to market.
Followed by the words of Stanford professor Steve Blank:
An organisation formed to search for a repeatable and scalable business model.
And this is where the MENTORS at the Darwin Innovation Hub come in:
